Student wins injunction against strikers

A Quebec City university student has won a legal fight to have one of his classrooms reopened.

Laurent Proulx convinced a Quebec Superior court judge that student strikes, declared by student groups across the province, should not be able to keep him from going to class.

The court has granted him an injunction that will reopen an anthropology class he's enrolled in at Laval University in Quebec City.

Proulx had argued that he needed to finish that class immediately, because he has a job lined up this summer.

He also argued that a delay could harm his chances of getting into law school.

But, the court granted him an injunction that applies to only that one anthropology course, not to the rest of the shuttered Universite Laval classes.
